Environmental officials will close parts of the Honga River in Dorchester County to shellfish harvesting because of elevated levels of bacteria.
The Maryland Department of the Environment has lifted shellfish harvesting restrictions in portions of three waterways following a decline in bacteria levels.
Maryland Natural Resources Police say a Taylors Island man faces up to $28,000 in fines for oyster harvesting violations.
